can car run solely on gas?
 
I have a 2006 prius w/ about 140000 miles. My mechanic believes that as the battery begins to fail the gas engine will be used more and more untill eventually the car will run strictly on the gas engine. He says mileage w/o the electric portion will be about the same as a similar size car of that age, perhaps a Corolla. Do I need a new mechanic?
